Auburn (24-5, 13-16 ATS) looks to right the ship coming off a tough loss at Rupp Arena against SEC bottom dweller Texas A&M (14-14, 12-16 ATS) at Auburn Arena.
Most people think of Auburn as a fast-paced team, but the Tigers are only the 152nd in pace at 68.8, according to KenPom, while Texas A&M plays one of slowest paces in the country at 64.1, ranking 339th. The only way Texas A&M has a chance at keeping this game close is to slow down the pace and limit Auburn’s offensive opportunities.
Texas A&M is also one of the worst offensive teams in the country and it is a miracle the Aggies are .500 they way they are shooting the ball. Texas A&M ranks 329h in eFG% and 339th in 3P%, while Auburn ranks above average in defensive eFG% (72nd in the country) and defensive 3P% (121st in the country).
